The Hidden Heartburn of Heartburn Meds

We continually receive phone calls from folks seeking a natural, herbal alternative for digestive and constipation challenges.

We believe that many physician-prescribed drugs are necessary and we will never say otherwise. But there are times when the medicine (either prescription or over the counter) itself literally creates a whole new set of problems.

Such is the case with drugs (either prescribed or over-the-counter) for heartburn.

Heartburn medications are called PPIs, which is short for proton pump inhibitors. Prilosec, Prevacid and Nexium are good examples of these as over the counter remedies for heartburn. These drugs are meant for TEMPORARY use, but the pain and discomfort caused by heartburn and acid reflux is often not temporary at all.

Briefly, PPIs work by suppressing stomach acid. The problem is that suppressing stomach acid over a long period of tum changes gut bacteria in a way that "promotes liver injuries and the progression of chronic liver disease."

That is the beauty of My Miracle Tea: that it allows the body to heal naturally. Those painful symptoms are indication of something WRONG that needs to be fixed, not covered up with medicine!

Long term use of PPIs can also cause:

  • Kidney disease
  • Serious infections (Including C.Difficile)
  • Liver disease
  • Diarrhea
  • Increased risk of bone fractures and even heart problems

If you, or someone you love, is battling acid reflux, heartburn, poor digestion or whatever else you want to call it and steadily popping these PPIs, I urge you to send the article below to them:

This is a real-life example of the principle presented by our good friend, Dr. Craig Frogley. His fascinating article explaining WHY pain is a good thing: because it's an indicator that something is wrong rather than something to be masked.

Many thanks to you, Dr. Frogley! Dear new Tea friends, My Miracle Tea is often a journey of healing with tweaking along the way as far as the amounts you drink and finding a healthier way to live -- that we recommend through the lifestyle. We hope you'll be patient as you get started and your body (sometimes quickly, sometimes more slowly) responds to its healing properties.
